Grey interiors are a popular and timeless option for home owners and property developers alike, creating an effective blank canvas for other design choices to really stand out. One of these design choices could be the window blinds. But what should you consider when choosing blinds to pair with grey interiors?

What are the important considerations when choosing blinds to pair with grey interiors?

To make sure that you achieve the right result, there are a number of factors to consider regarding the type, style and design of the blind you choose. These include:

  • Contemporary or traditional design
  • The purpose of the space
  • Colour and design

Contemporary or traditional design

Grey walls are a design choice that can complement both contemporary and traditional design styles and so when choosing blinds to pair with grey interiors it’s important to first determine the style that will be the best fit. 

For a more traditional look in a space with a more traditional design you could opt for wooden or wooden effect blinds. These warm, natural materials will complement the cool tones of the grey walls and add a touch of texture to the room.

For a more contemporary finish, you could opt for vertical blinds, or roman or roller blinds depending on your space. Each of these options can be chosen for stylish and effective results.

The purpose of the space

Grey interiors can suit a wide range of rooms in a home or property, and the purpose and type of room should have an impact on the type of blinds you choose. 

For living room spaces with grey walls lighting control and privacy will be important. For this, vertical blinds and venetian blinds are popular as these can offer a higher degree of lighting control, without having a negative impact on the privacy within the space. Pleated or roman blinds can also be very effective, although these offer reduced lighting control in comparison.

For bedrooms a roller blind is always a good choice as this will block out the majority of the light. To ensure a good night’s sleep you could even opt for a blackout roller blind. These are available in a wide range of colours and designs that can really make your blinds and window stand out in a grey room. 

Grey interiors are also a popular option for kitchens and bathrooms. The blinds in these rooms will need to be water resistant and easy to clean, so wooden blinds should be avoided. 

Choosing the colour and design of the blinds

As mentioned earlier, blinds are available in a wide range of colours and designs to suit any design style. For grey interiors the option can include:

  • White or cream blinds- for a neutral finish opting for a white off white or cream for your blinds can add a touch of lightness to the grey decor and help to create a space that is a true blank canvas.
  • Bold colours- to create an area of contrast and a focal point in the room you could opt for a bolder or brighter colour for your blinds. Blue is a gentle option that can nicely offset grey interiors, but there are other, brighter options that can create contrast and have more of a visual impact. For example, bright red or orange blinds will create a striking contrast against the grey walls and add a playful touch to the space.
